Trump’s Missouri Visit Adds Pressure on McCaskill to Support GOP Tax Plan

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) will experience some added pressure to support tax cuts this year just as the U.S. Senate prepares to vote on the GOP tax cut plan.

The Kansas City Star reported on Monday that President Trump will visit Missouri on Wednesday to plug his plan to cut taxes for individuals and businesses:

When President Donald Trump visits a St. Louis suburb on Wednesday to talk about tax cuts, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley will make sure he’s among the elected officials there to greet him.

Hawley announced earlier this year that he would challenge McCaskill in 2018. McCaskill is considered one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats up for re-election next year.

The GOP pointed out this month that McCaskill has called for a cut in the corporate tax rate before. What’s more, a poll conducted earlier this year found nearly three-quarters (72 percent) of McCaskill’s constituents support Trump’s tax plan.

McCaskill, on the other hand, has seen her numbers drop in recent months. Her approval rating is a mere net three points (42-39). That’s a bad position for the veteran politician less than a year ahead of the political fight of her life.
